Whether bound to hit scheme or some counterfeit cream...
The Buffs jumped back into the Bubble Bunch yesterday with a walloping of Pac 12 leader Cal at the Foam Dome. If the Buffs are in fact on the bubble, it is the extreme edge of it, only one swift gasp of air from popping.
The effort that was on display yesterday from the Black and Gold was sorely needed on Thursday, when the team had perhaps its worst effort of the year versus Stanford. (Note to fellow 12-packers: the back end game of the Utah/Colorado trip is probably the hardest in the league. This ain't a cross town trip in LA or a little jaunt in merry Arizona. There's like mountains in between.)
The Buffs will need to go perfect in Oregon this coming weekend versus the Ducks and against Obama's El Brollo Cunado and set themselves up for a run at the Pac 12 tourney. Even with all of that, it will be tough to get to the big dance. Remember last year and the hose job? In a lesser conference with badder loses and a year of whining in the committee's ears. But this league is wide open and the easiest way to remove any doubt is win in Kobe's house and pop the shit out of that bubble.
